Celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Sandra Bullock, Drake, Beyonce, and Miranda Lambert (to name a few) have been donating money to support Houston in it's time of need and big organizations like Facebook, Amazon, Google, Disney, Home Depot, among others have also donated money to help the victims of this devastating natural disaster, Hurricane Harvey. If you are looking for a way to help, here are 4 ways to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.


1) Facebook's Will Match Donations to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy's Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund

Facebook has announced that they "will match up to $1 million of donations to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy's Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund."

2) This is a post that has been going around Facebook.

"Houston needs us...
***If you are interested in volunteering or donating, please repost. this is super important information.

OK so we just got done volunteering at George R Brown convention center for several hours and I have one request when you donate stuff..... separated out and write on the bag clearly what the items are. Separate the female items from the male items. Just put shoes in one bag tie the laces together with each pair so they don't get lost! Put sanitary items in Ziploc bag so it just makes it easier to hand out, if you organize it in advance we can put it in their hands faster. It is tedious and takes lots and lots of hours just to separate products because people are just throwing stuff in all the bags! It could definitely be a lot more productive if people would organize their items prior to putting them in trashbags.

If you can please repost this it would save the volunteers hours upon hours of sorting!!!

They are in desperate need of blankets, pillows and towels! Baby food /formula and diapers . Bottles, baby wipes. Sanitation items. Toothbrush & toothpaste. Body wash, deodorant. Tennis shoes, flip-flops or slippers. Jackets and sweatshirts. Medical equipment such as nebulizers and they need pharmaceutical items like Tylenol and Advil. Band-Aids, anabiotic ointments etc. Please don't donate items such as pots and pants obviously people have no place to use them right now. And don't put your scraps in there please give gently used items.

Volunteering is an 8 hour shift.
They need nurses with a pulse monitor."

3) Greater Houston Community Foundation's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

Mayor Sylvester Turner has established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will accept tax-deductible flood relief donations for victims affected by the recent floods. You may make a donation of $10 or greater.

Ryan's Recycling: 9-Year-Old Entrepreneur Goes Green and then Goes Global!

Ryan Hickman is a kid with a unique perspective about how he likes to spend his free time. "We all have our passions," he explains. "My only sport is recycling…which is probably not a sport to other kids, but it is to me…so it's a sport!"

In 2012 at the age of 3, Ryan went along with his dad, Damion, to the local recycling center and cashed in a few small bags of cans and bottles and quickly decided that recycling was in his future. The very next day, Ryan notified his parents that he wanted to give empty plastic bags to all their neighbors and maybe they would save their recyclables for him. Not only did the local neighbors rally to support Ryan' efforts, but so did their friends, families and co-workers. Today, Ryan has customers all over Orange County, CA.
